    I have a Corner tank and Currently it has 3 big bunches of tall plants in the middle. I want to have a change when I switch to tropical:

    Bought these to go in when I change over:

    My issue is that they arn't very tall and my tank will look bare at the top.
     
    Any ideas on how to fill in the top sections? maybe have plants drooping in from the edges.

    with the fake plants you can adjust the length by removing the tops and putting on other parts of the plant.. you can move the taller plants to the back and add those where they were before.
    so you can use the tall plants to have the very tall giving the over grown look at the back while the rest or what is left over give different lengths for a more natural look and add the short plants to the front.

    Thanks for the reply BerryAttack,
     
    I'm thinking of merging the tall ones together on a acrylic I bought years ago, bending it to the shape of the tank and drilling holes and sealing the stalks into it.it will be thin but should be enough to hide the powerhead and pipes. the new plants I bought don't ave this option as they are better spec(and more costly) but will be nice as foreground plants.
